 The Medical Students’ Association (MSA) is a student-run organization centered on the interests, needs, and concerns of all medical students. Our association’s mandate is to function as a liaison between medical students and the Faculty of Medicine, as well as other medical associations external to Alfaisal University. As the delegates of the medical student body, the MSA’s main priority is to give each and every student the means to voice himself or herself. Striving to serve as the medical students’ pillar of support, MSA organizes a variety of different academic and non-academic activities throughout the year to ensure the best college experience possible. In the aim of fulfilling our responsibility, the MSA is structured specifically to appoint roles to each of its committees.

  • MSA provides many opportunities and unique experiences that you won’t be able to find anywhere else.

  • Builds teamwork and leadership experience, while also aiding you in forming connections with both faculty and peels.

  • Acts as a tool to aid in your academic and non-academic development.

  • Allows you to unleash your ideas, knowledge, and creativity and see those ideas come to life.

  • Acts as an outlet away from studying to prevent burnout.
